We arrived fairly late in the day without a reservation, La Rana was a gem. The views from the restaurant balcony, overlooking the garden were amazing, what beautiful grounds. We ate in the restaurant both evenings and the food was fantastic, as was breakfast. Rooms were a little rustic but very clean. We enjoyed our stay here.

It is the perfect compromise between big, pricey hotels typical for the area and small B&B's which offer few amenities. Here you can have your Wiener Schnitzel and watch colorful... More

Day 4 of our trip was turning out to be LONG! We had booked a White Water Rafting trip that was supposed to have been from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Reality was 9:30 a.m. (by the time the tour guide showed up) to about 4:30 p.m. No one had told us of the 1+ hour trip by bus each... More
